This review is from: Seagate GoFlex Satellite 500GB Mobile Wireless Storage (Black)
Pros: An easy way to extend your device's media storage.
I like the product.
Cons: Some issues with the software (see below). Let's hope the next firmware will fix those.
Other Thoughts: Hardware:
Wireless range - less than 30 feet. But that's enough if used on a car trip.
Battery life - about 2 hours if listening to music. But the device could charge and stream in the same time.
The Seagate iOS app fails to browse into folders named with non-latin letters.
The DLNA server starts re-indexing every time the device is turned on - a long-lasting operation with constant disk spin. That drains the battery. And the long wait is inconvenient if you use a DLNA client instead of the Seagate app.
This review is from: Corsair P128 CMFSSD-128GBG2D 2.5" 128GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Worked for about 3 hours (HP laptop, Vista 64).
Cons: Suddenly disappeared as a device, even the BIOS could not see it. Put it in an external sata enclosure and connected to some other PCs without any success.
Requested an RMA, maybe it was just a defective device.
Other Thoughts: (When it worked) the benchmarks were far from good:
Tested by copying a 10GB file from one folder to another. Initially the speed was acceptable - about 80-90 MB/s. After a minute the speed started dropping (and the drive became pretty hot) and soon got stabilized at 22-23 MB/s. FYI, the replaced hard disk (5400) does the same at constant 24-25 MB/s speed.
